Man accused of stealing $233k from ATMs

Aman responsible for servicing ATMs at CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank (FCIB) allegedly abused his position of trust by stealing almost $300,000 over a three-month period, court papers allege.

Prosecutors say Travis Seymour, 30, of Blue Hill Road, while employed as a technician at Bahamas Power and Air, stole $233,130 from various FCIB satellite ATMs between October 22, 2019 and January 21, 2020.

Prosecutors allege that Seymour worked with 31-year-old Samantha Gilbert, an ATM supervisor at FCIB, when they both stole $62,790 on January 24.

Both defendants elected a trial in the magistrates court at their arraignment before Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

Seymour denied eight counts of stealing by reason of employment, one count of conspiracy to commit stealing by reason of employment and four counts of money laundering.

Gilbert is charged with one count of stealing by reason of employment and one count of conspiracy to steal by reason of employment.

Seymour is accused of laundering the stolen money by acquiring cash and a 75-inch Philips TV as well as a Sonos speaker system.

Gilbert is accused of laundering money with the purchase of a 65-inch LG TV, a 55-inch LG TV, two bedroom sets, a dining room set and a front room set.

Due to the nature of the charges, they were denied bail and advised of their right to seek bail in the Supreme Court.

They return to court for trial on May 5.

Ian Cargill represents Gilbert and Allan Emmanuel represents Seymour.
